current-folder component breaks MH6

current-folder component breaks MH6

Post by David Lesl » Sat, 23 Jun 1990 06:08:42



Several users here have recently upgraded from MH3.2 to MH6.6.  We find
that several commands break if the users have a 'current-folder' line in
their .mh_profile files.  I know that this information is now stored in
the Mail/context file in MH6.6, but would prefer MH6.6 to benignly overlook
the extraneous field in .mh_profile, rather than printing obscure error
messages and failing.

Commands which fail seem to be those which try to change the current
folder.  Error messages are of the form

folder: bug: m_replace(key="Current-Folder",value="sys"), continuing...

when executing 'folder +sys', for example.

Anyone have an easy fix for this (we have source code)?

Version info:

version: MH 6.6 #3[UCI] (future) of Wed Jun  6 12:20:21 PDT 1990
options: [SYS5] [XD88] [SBACKUP='","'] [MORE='"/usr/bin/pg"'] [SENDMTS]

Thanks,

Yes.  You should build MH with the "COMPAT" option.  See the
READ-ME file for more details.

1. bug: m_replace(key="Current-Folder",value="private"), continuing...

I get this message...

  bug: m_replace(key="Current-Folder",value="private"), continuing...

(where "private" is the name of the folder) when I invoke various mh
commands with an explicit folder argument.  However, everything seems
to work correctly nevertheless.  Can someone give me any leads as to
what might be causing this and what to do about it?
